Scrubbie Scrubbie

It’s not my usual design project, but last fall I was asked by the lovely Bobbie Matella of Coats and Clark to adapt a 1940s dishcloth pattern for a book they would be releasing.

The book, “Vintage Crochet for Your Home” is now available. My adaptation of Mitered Dishcloths is on page 24.  They are worked in Coat’s Creme de la Creme cotton. 

The citrusy colors are cheerful and the ridges on the cloths make them ideal for getting stubborn bits off the dishes when washing up, or could be great in the bath for exfoliating.

Seeing this design again is reminding me of some other ideas I got while working on it.  I may have to clone myself to get even half of my design ideas done.

  1. I love those dishcloths! I have NEVER really wanted to make any. They never looked like much of a challenge OR looked liked they’d be effective for really cleaning dishes. Not these! These look great! How can I get a copy of the book or pattern?

    1. I”m so glad it inspired you. They are lots of fun to make.

      I have seen the book on, I think it should also be available thru the Red site. I believe the pattern is only available in the book and not individually.
